Blocked Info

When I try to open certain sites and info areas, (e.g. Comcast Help), I get blocked and a pop up explanation point in a yellow field, (cartoon word type). What is it and how do I correct? Thanks

If you are seeing the yellow exclmation point icon on the task bar (bottom left)  Click on it and it will show the details.  Post the details.

There is no message. When I left click on help or running ads a small "cloud" (Cartoon dialogue) pops up with a yellow background and a red exclamation point inside. The click doesn't open. There is nothing placed in the task bar. It appears with the click at the the click point

Have you run a full virus scan?

Re: Blocked Info

Which browser/version are you using?  Which operating system?  Can you post some of the other websites that are giving you this pop up?  (post the full url)

 

Do you have your Pop Blocker enabled?

Re: Blocked Info

Sites = The "help" button on the Xfinity Email toolbar

             Some, not all, of the Ad sites on the Email Main Page 

 

             It appears to be a standard "pop-up" message type icon, Red lightning bolt in a yellow field , sometimes it allows me to open site in a seperate page, sometimes not! AM using IE 9. Does not happen in Firefox.
